I french polished more than a dozen pianos , only two from bare wood but even one is quite a bit of work . Drying oil would certainly get sorted out there as to whether it works or not . I used it on furniture to check it out - conclusion , not a good idea , just a gummy mess . Maybe for some small item like a guitar back , it could be managed , I don't know , but it is not something I would recommend
